by Amanda Sutcliffe Travel Deals

Of all the Indonesian islands, Bali is among the most popular ones and gives you the chance to enjoy diverse experiences. You would be delighted to visit its charming beaches, ancient temples, and beautiful villages in this part of the world. The roadside stalls and restaurants would allow you to taste the delicious dishes from the Balinese cuisine. Despite the crowded tourist areas, you would not miss the rich natural beauty of this island as you begin exploring its popular attractions. It has places that would please your senses and allow you to indulge in some exciting activities like hiking and trekking.

You can book cheap flights to Bali and save a significant amount, which can be utilised during your sightseeing trips in this island destination. Among the most popular attractions on the island is a temple known as 'Pura Tanah Lot'. It is one of the most iconic temples on the island and has been built on a rocky islet, which is surrounded by crashing waves of the sea. In the evening, it is visited by plenty of tourists arriving from Sanur, Kuta, and Legian. The temple was built in the early 16th century and was built on the orders of a priest called Nirartha.

If you're looking for an ideal place to enjoy trekking, Mount Batur would be an excellent choice. It is explored by hundreds of visitors during the period before dawn. They trek all the way to its summit to watch a beautiful sun rising above the mist-covered mountains and caldera. Mount Batur is a sacred mountain located in the central highlands of the island in the district of Kintamani. It can be reached by driving from Ubud for about an hour. A trek to the summit of this mountain is one of the must-do activities that feature on the bucket lists of many tourists visiting Bali.

Uluwatu Temple is another famous temple on this island and one of its prominent features is its fabulous clifftop setting. The name of this temple has been derived from the words 'Ulu' and 'Watu', which mean 'tip' and 'rock' respectively. Sunset is the best time to explore this temple located on the south-western tip of the island. The locals believe that this temple protects the island of Bali from evil spirits that dwell in the sea. Monkeys living in the forest near the entrance of this island are believed to protect the temple from bad influences.

The Monkey Forest in Ubud is also one of the attractions you must not miss while holidaying in Bali. Wildlife photographers and animal lovers would enjoy a trip to this forest, as it is home to the grey long-tailed macaques. They can be seen roaming around freely in their natural habitat. You can get to witness some ancient temples and statues covered with moss as you make your way through this forest on the paved pathways. One of the three temples you'll come across in this forest is Pura Dalem Agung Padangtegal, which dates back to the 14th century.
